MADISON (WKOW) -- The Driveway Thriftdwellers keep escapist dreams alive with their artisanal country music.
The band made up of veteran musicians from Madison and Milwaukee stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to display their talents.
The band draws upon its founding brothers’ Northwoods upbringing to create a no-nonsense blend of DIY classic country and Americana sensibilities. Earthy vocal harmonies and down-home pedal steel distinguish the group’s sound.
The band is getting ready to release their debut album, "Cutover Country" on August 19.
The Thriftdwellers’ live shows feature a diverse mix of original music – ranging from sprawling odes about unspoiled landscapes to up-tempo bar anthems – and occasional tributes to everyone from Merle Haggard to Rancid, all lovingly performed with just the right amount of North Country twang.
